Upper West Side: This was the perfect location to Central Park, bike rentals, kosher restaurants within walking distance, shopping and Synagogues. The Hotel is clean and nicely appointed, great lobby, fast free wifi, everyone at the Hotel was friendly and helpful! Front desk saved me a $100 with the advise to park one block over for fee on the weekend!!... More

With historic Zabars, Central Park, a plethora of restaurants (be sure to visit Irving Farm Coffee Roasters) and the subway not even a block away, the location is unrivaled. The staff is warm and welcoming. The accommodations immaculate. The coupons for breakfast were a nice gesture. Was a bit hesitant being situated close to the elevator, but never heard it... More

My family enjoyed retreating to this relaxed spot near Central Park. Room was spotless and the staff was extremely courteous.Subway,restaurants, and shopping all are nearby. Beds and linens were new and very comfortable. Had a hard time getting my son out of bed each morning. Nice Matin Restaurant, within the hotel, was outstanding! Wine and cheese in lobby was neat....

Really cannot beat the location. Upper West Side with all its conveniences, and so many lovely restaurants so close by. Stayed on the 9th floor, and absolutely no noise from streets. Hotel clean and friendly.

Gave us free room upgrade and coupons for restaurants. Located on upper west side by museum of natural history. Train and other attractions we found to be a long walk. Discovered late... More

I stayed here with my son and the double double room was the perfect size. Everything was clean and easy to use, including the large TV and premium coffee maker. Easy walk to central park and Lincoln Center, but also accessible to Time Square by walk or Subway; which you can get just one block from hotel. Lovely neighborhood. Hotel... More
